Launceston WW1 100 - A Remembrance
Early this autumn a small group of people from South Petherwin Parish, Roger Pyke, Sue Vernon, Phil Parsons and from Lewannick Andrew Fuge got together to form the WW1 100 Group. Their core aim was to commemorate the, 'defining record of the 94 fallen soldiers from their home town of Launceston and the surrounding parishes'.
With this in mind an exhibition has been planned to take place from the Friday 9th to the 11th of November 2018, marking the end of the First World War.
The event is to be held at Central Methodist Church and will display the stories of each fallen serviceman from the town and the local villages along with life at home stories. Theses include the Belgium refugees story, the Suffragette connections and PoW stories.
